Yesterday I got the ol’ best-of-2019 lists kicked off with the best cover songs of 2019. Today I shift attention to the best new music discoveries of 2019.
Each year I give a disclaimer about this list. This is not necessarily only artists who first came out in 2019. This is one of the following three scenarios:
- 1. A brand new artist who appeared on the national scene for the first time in 2019. (Example: Yola)
2. An artist who had their debut full-length album in 2019. (This is for artists who might’ve released EPs previously, but never a proper LP.) (Example: Maggie Rogers)
3. An artist who I personally discovered for the first time ever in 2019. (Example: DaBaby)
Alright, here we go. These are the 25 best cover songs of 2019.
NOTE: Just like the cover songs list, this is a non-ranked list.
